Obituary

SPRINGFIELD

Londas Ellis hanged himself last Saturday morning, from a beam in his barn. He has been partially insane for a long time. He was about 47 years old, and leaves two daughters, who have the sympathy of the whole town. His funeral was held Monday, under the direction of the G.A.R. Post.
